OK folks, I'm trying not to bug Jeff, so lets see if someone can assist.

I (and a few others) are wanting to display photos for the BASH Contests in a large screen size rather than the thumbnail size.

I am using a Macbook.
I can download photos as attachments.
I can set up the polls.
I can imbed the thumbnails into the text.

I have not been successful in getting a large size image.

I have viewed Jeff's UTube tutorial for how to imbed full size pictures, but when I get to the stage of using the attachment tool (paperclip, above), picking the image, then using the Inset Image tool (Yellow box above with the mountain), it is still inserting a thumbnail size rather than a full size???

So, any suggestions would be great.

I do not want to do any resizing, editing, etc for the BASH submitted contest photos as that may open a bag of worms if I do it incorrectly.

I have several trials in the 1-2-3 testing forum: Trial

I have done that for some of my personal photos, but as I understand it, for the contests, photos will be sent in and used initially as an attachment prior to being embedded in the text.

But I could be wrong.

On my Mac I typically do not use a mouse, so the right click function as I understand it is a "Control" key and fingerpad click at the same time. But I have also gotten a mouse and have a right click option - but I still get the thumbnail size pictures in the text.

When I go to your test page, I see the thumbnail image, but if I then click on that thumbnail, I can see a full size version of the image.

Isn't that the way you want it to work?

Did you ask Brian how he did his??

Whenever I want a photo the same size I take from Photobucket or wherever you store photos. Don't they have a place here where you send photos to and then resize all as a group.

If someone sends you a thumbnail click on thumbnail and open. Then right click on photo and select copy img address. Then click on yellow mountain and paste address in box and enter. But if you send all photos to a resizing site you then can size them all the same. Not sure how a Mac works but that is how I do my computer.

This was your thumbnail in your other thread

Yes I just checked and tried various ways and that seemed to do the trick even in this thread.

Are you using the [attach] tag or the [img] tag?

[attach]183607[/attach]

will yield a link:

View attachment 183607

or thumbnail link (depending on whether or not you're in the same post as the attachment):

whereas:

[img]http://www.penturners.org/forum/attachments/f12/183607d1546963170-poll-photos-full-size-test-kk.jpg[/img]

or

[img]http://www.penturners.org/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=183607[/img]


will imbed the full-size image:



I hope that helps,
Eric
